FAIR BILLING POLICY
Only pay for the team members who are using busybusy. Simple.
busybusy believes that a software company should only be successful if their clients are successful in using their product. So with busybusy:
You don’t sign a contract
You are only charged for active users each month
You have a 90-day money-back guarantee
We only win if you win. It’s really that simple.
What Makes an Active User?
A user who has logged into the app, the web, or has a time entry.
Adding New Users
You can add a new user at any time during the billing cycle, we will view them as active and your bill will automatically adjust.
Leo‘s billing cycle is on the 15th of each month. On the 29th he adds 1 new user. busybusy will automatically detect that new user and adjust his bill accordingly.
Each billing period starts on the day of the month you activated your account. You will be billed the following month on the same day.
Leo signed up for a Pro plan on May 25th. On June 25th, busybusy’s app will process how many active users he had from May 25 – June 25, then his card will be billed automatically.
On our Pro plan, if all users become inactive, you will be charged for a minimum of one user until the Pro account has been downgraded to a Free account or cancelled.
Every month our app will detect which users were active and which were not. When we detect users that become inactive, we will automatically remove their cost from your next month’s bill. We will detect and add any new users.
Leo has a seasonal crew of 5 employees. For his September billing period, those 5 users logged no time. Busybusy automatically processes them as inactive and takes them off Leo’s next bill.
In December, those users log time and become active. At the end of the billing cycle, they are automatically detected and added to Leo’s bill. Their data continues to track, sync, and report as usual.
Inactive Free Accounts
After six months of continuous inactivity, busybusy will delete the inactive account and the data that is stored in it.
Inactive Pro Accounts
Each client is responsible to downgrade their Pro subscription. If your subscription remains PRO with no activity you will be charged the minimum one user for each of the first five months of inactivity. For annual subscriptions with remaining credit, after six months of continuous inactivity, busybusy will charge a $500.00 maintenance fee for maintaining the Pro subscription. After a year of inactivity, the client’s inactive account will be charged for the remaining credits on the account and the account will be canceled.
busybusy Inc. offers annual pricing where the per-user rate is discounted from the standard monthly active user price. You may select the option to choose an annual plan when you first sign up for busybusy or you may switch to the annual billing option at any time during your regular billing cycle.
The total annual amount is based on user credits. When you purchase an annual plan, you are purchasing monthly credits for the projected number of employees. The credits will be applied each month, throughout the year.
If you add users at any time during the year and use more credits than purchased with your annual plan, the credits will be consumed at a faster rate. You will receive a monthly invoice that notifies you in regard to the number of active users for each month.
If you pay an annual contract for 10 users you receive 120 user credits. If you add a user, you will make your monthly active user total 11. Each month, you will use 11 user credits. After 10 months you will have used 110 of the 120 user credits you purchased with your annual contract.
If you do not use a credit or if a user is not active during any month, the credit will carry over to a later month or the following year.
If you pay an annual contract for 10 users you receive 120 user credits. If you only have 9 active users per month, you will only consume 9 credits each month. At the end of 1 year, you will have only consumed 108 user credits and the remaining will carry over to the following month(s).
If you purchase the Annual plan and you cancel your account before using all your existing user credits we will give you a prorated refund for 80% of your remaining credits.
If you paid for an annual plan for 10 users (120 monthly user credits), used half of them (60 remaining) and then canceled we would refund you for 48 credits which is 479.52 that would be refunded to your card.
